Some foods have medicinal properties and can also be used in the garden, such as garlic, its benefits include the possibility of making a natural repellent to eliminate aphids from our crops.

Hello friends of La Sleeeeeep, as you can see, we are following a series of articles that began with the creation of a terrace to grow our own food and from now on, those interested in having a garden at home on a small plot or in a pot You are in luck, because we are going to continue showing small articles about interesting things so that our crops and plants grow healthy and strong.

Natural garlic repellent for aphids

On this occasion I would like to talk about the aphid and how to repel it, it is a small insect that makes its appearance in many plants, whether they are in the garden, as in ornamental geraniums, rose bushes, etc. This is the hated and feared aphid, which becomes a plague if we do not remedy it, that inseparable friend who also brings with him others such as ants.

I did not want to miss the opportunity that Sleeeeeep gives us to show you the best and cheapest home remedy to combat aphids, a natural garlic repellent.

A way for them to disappear from our plants, since many times we get tired of remedies that they sell us, charging us a lot of money without any solution and we end up succumbing to chemicals that what they do is contaminate everything they touch.

Although it is prepared or infused, it is used for more insects and against fungi, we use it against aphids, but it also serves to fight against mites and to prevent the appearance of fungi.

How to make our natural repellent

Garlic remedies should be applied at sunrise or sunset, as the compound degrades with temperature and sunlight.

This is an example of the different mixes that can be made. It should be clarified that the mixtures are variable and you can add other natural active ingredients such as onion, chili peppers or nicotine (nicotine is not acceptable by some like me, as it is quite aggressive with other insects) See video:
